Most Favorable Review

Solid value!

XFX SPEEDSTER QICK308 RADEON RX 6600 XT BLACK Gaming Graphics Card with 8GB GDDR6 HDMI 3xDP, AMD RDNA 2 (RX-66XT8LBDQ)
XFX SPEEDSTER QICK308 RADEON RX 6600 XT BLACK Gaming Graphics Card with 8GB GDDR6 HDMI 3xDP, AMD RDNA 2 (RX-66XT8LBDQ)

Pros: Great price to performance... Upgraded from MSI 1660 ti Gaming X edition. The combo price with ASrock wifi B450m motherboard is the only way I could get his near msrp, but the board was a great addition to my wife's rig. She enjoys the wifi upgrade.

Cons: Honestly None. I was really surprised at the value of the combo deal.

Overall Review: Solid purchase for anyone trying to upgrade from 1660 ti or lower gpu. Currently running ryzen 7 2700 (8c /16thrd). Even without running a 5000 series cpu, this gpu is getting great frames on all major titles via 1920x1080p. Avg: 80-120fps with some dips to 60fps in a small amount of titles.

The creaking sound!

DOWINX Gaming Chair Office Desk Chair with Massage Lumbar Support Type, Vintage Style Armchair PU Leather E-Sports Gamer Chairs with Retractable Footrest (Ivory)
DOWINX Gaming Chair Office Desk Chair with Massage Lumbar Support Type, Vintage Style Armchair PU Leather E-Sports Gamer Chairs with Retractable Footrest (Ivory)

Pros: Comfy. Has foot rest. Adjustable back and neck support. Quality material. Fully reclines!

Cons: Every time you shift weight in the chair from side to side or front to back there is a loud creaking sound, as if it needs some lubricant. I attempted to oil the places I thought where the cause of the noise, but was unable to find it. Also the arm rest we attached, and would be better if independent, however the design allows for 180 degree recline, so its a trade.

Overall Review: Okay for price, but would be amazing if the creaking wasn't a thing.

Perfect

Pros: Smaller than 120mm, great cooling power, and on a build that was designed to be minimal, that brushed chrome radiator is the perfect amount of pop.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Great value for performance, with the aesthetic to boot!

New Favorite.

Cons: Honestly none.

Overall Review: I didn't measure my case (O11 Dynamic), doesn't fit 140mm. I have heard great things about this cooler, but won't get the chance to use it myself. Only posting to help prevent the same mistake for someone else.
